There is not enough data about the frequency of illegal drug use during pregnancy in developing countries and consequently the incidence of neonatal abstinence syndrome in newborn infants is unknown. In recent years, a significant increase in the number of cases reported as neonatal abstinence syndrome has been detected in the literature. Due to the social and religious culture of our society, health care practitioners do not receive sufficient and accurate information from patients and their relatives. Often, this situation is revealed by the awareness of the health care practitioner. In this review, the illegal substances frequently used in pregnancy, the findings and treatment of these substances in the newborn baby, the current legal situation related to the subject in our country and the procedures of social services related to the subject were discussed and the procedures to be followed in this case were evaluated.
